the election you were asked whether if obama won taxes would have to go up. i are acknowledging that they will. >> the day after the election i came here and made it clear that the republicans would put revenue on the table as a way to begin to move the process to get this resolved. >> my question is, what message do you have for people who look at the negotiating position and believe it's inevitable you'll have to accept some compromise on tax. >> revenue is on the table. but revenue was only on the table if there was a serious spending cut as part of this agreement. it has to be part of the agreement. we have a debt crisis. we are spending too much. and while we are willing to put revenue on the table, we have to recognize is the spending that's out of control. >> roughly what size spending cuts do you think it would take to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff? do you think that at least the promise of spending cuts has to be included in this level deal at this time? >> i don't think there's -- it's productive for either side to lay out hard lines in terms of what the size of the spending cuts
backlash against president obama coming out for gay marriage that would hurt him in the election. the opposite happened. even within the african-american community which is very religious and which has a high number of evangelicals you've seen a movement in favor of gay marriage. >> and in fact a lot of the same sex advocates thought maryland wouldn't be among the states. they thought it would be maine and washington but not maryland. maryland wouldn't do it at the ballot box because it's about 30% african-american. maryland did it. >> i'm curious why you think president bill clinton since he has the freedom hillary doesn't, why hasn't he apologized for this stain on his record? >> in 2009 before obama, not a very expansive or hugely heartfelt way, said i'm now for marriage equality. again it was not a big statement. i think he feels like i did that, what more do i have to do. i think doma is such a nasty bit of legislation, codified bigotry, it calls for more robust than that. >> the important divergence that frank is identifying between the two democratic presidents. president

was exhausted from the election. now the obama side is having people send out tweets and emails and playing this populist sight. i would say it seems exhaustive. it works. it has been working for the president. throw this out there. do you think this makes a lot of sense? in polls that i was looking at they have republicans, folks feel if the fiscal cliff going to happen they would blame republicans 20% over this. >> there o. this may be true. if there is another recession he is going to be the president. it's his recession it will not be john boehner's name 10 years from now? or are they going to stick this on president obama. here is president obama about the lack of progress in d.c. >> it was not a serious proposal. right now we are almost nowhere. let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. people who have watched me over the last three weeks i have been very guarded in what i have to say. i don't want to make it harder for me or the president or members of both parties to be able to find common ground. >> boehner also said that he felt because of the fact that
of the rich paying their fair share, they say 53% of americans voted for that. i saw president obama on television about one month or so before the election saying he was not concerned about the deficit. i have a question. do all of the people on medicaid, that obama put on medicaid, does it come out of the medicaid program? guest: yes, it does. that is why i like paul ryan plan, which limits inflation growth. we find the states do better with exactly what we did on welfare in the 1990's. the great thing about paul's proposal is that it is not new. it has worked before. what is new that -- is that he had the political courage to put it in a package. host: con twitter, alabama, chris -- the gop plan is to create fiscal crisis that can privatize social security and medicare. guest: that is not true. our aim is to expand those programs for future generations. right now, everybody paying in is paying more than their parents and grandparents, and if we do not make changes they will get considerably less. let's sit down and deal with these things. if it is a math problem. we're not talking
." previously covered the 2008 presidential election where he traveled with the obama campaign. nick, i will turn the podium over to you now. >> thank you. let's have everybody take the seat. thank you all, and thank you for coming. i look forward to our discussion this afternoon. instead of doing opening statements from each speaker, i will ask a generic question that can maybe help frame the discussion, and then it will go from there. sarah, i will start with you. we will go in reverse alphabetical order. the question i posed to you is maybe if you could identify the most important lesson that we should draw from the experience of the past five years with respect to the fha, and then part of that i might ask is whether lawmakers and taxpayers should be prepared to accept some level of loss, given the housing recession that we have been through. sarah, i will start with you. >> thanks, and i have to say how much fun is to be back debt cap -- to be back at cap. the big lesson regarding fha is a core concept of the federal housing policy worked. it did not work as well as we like to get,
on booktv. >> now a panel of authors who have written about president obama. from last month's washington ideas forum, this is less than a half-hour. >> before the election we were putting together some of these panels. we had one titled why did he win, why did he lose. we are having three authors of at some books about president obama, jonathan alter, and david mariness. interviewedg to be by a great interviewer purity always ask the questions, and ever i was writing a profile, what is he really like? >> where is the profile? >> it is on my laptop. >> thank you. it is great to be here. [applause] for the zoo cannot figure out which is which, david, jonathan, ron. i will start in the middle. this book is the center holds. what is it in your first book about obama that made you cast him as a centrist? >> i always thought he was a pragmatist. his overall approach to issues when he was in the u.s. senate, it the audacity of hope, about his altogether three senate career. it is clear that he is not an ideologue. i always thought the idea of him a socialist or what ever is just a smear. >> how

. and the history of black people in this country, even the political history, those who were first elected to congress and to senate were all republicans. and the first democrat elected to the senate in the united states was carol moseley-braun and the second one was barack obama. the history of the republican party has always been that of freedom for all people and that's what we try to convey in our movie and we are very successfully doing that, "the runaway slave." that's the message. >> reverend, excuse me one second. >> mayor, there's been a lot of talk about how the hispanic vote has helped the president win votes like florida and nevada. but what's been less talked about is how the african-american vote gave the president higher totals in states like georgia as well as mississippi. when you hear what the reverend has to say in regard to the democratic party modern day, do you agree with what he's saying? >> if this weren't such a serious topic, his comments would be laughable. the president won a minority groups across the boar, not on latinos but asians. but he did it because all o
on the wealthy will hurt the economy. >>> today, president obama is hosting mitt romney at the white house for a private lunch. after the election, the president promised to reach out to romney for his ideas. >>> and overseas, the u.s. could be getting more involved in the civil war in syria. "the new york times" is reporting the obama administration is considering options, including arming the rebel fighters there who have made progress in recent days in battling bashar al assad's forces. >>> and more trouble for president obama's expected nominee for secretary of state. susan collins says she will not back rice for the job, until more questions on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya are answered. collins said if president obama nominates senator john kerry instead, he would have no trouble winning confirmation. >>> and breaking news out of new york. lindsay lohan has been arrested again, after a fight at a nightclub here in the city early this morning. she is facing assault charges for allegedly punching a woman in the face. police are not saying how long they intend to keep her in
, or president george w. bush or president barack obama, the truth is, at the time they were elected president, we as a nation, overall, got the president we deserved at that time. now, one of the most impressive speeches i've ever heard was given by senator barack obama at the democratic convention, and i love the way he talked about america coming back as one america. not a red america or blue america but america. just one country. and it's one of the things that i drew great hope from on 9/12 delsh 2001 as people of the country -- on 9/12/2001 as people of the country gathered around, as we did in our east texas town, and we all held hands and we sang hymns and patriotic songs and you look -- i look around the circle and was deeply moved because i knew that day there were no hyphenated americans. there were just americans. and we were together. and everybody standing there in that square holding hands, we shared the love for our country. we wanted to see it strong. we wanted to see it recover from that devastating blow from people intent on evil based on hatred. well, that senator that want
